Press Releases

Columbia, SC – SC Whitmore School (SCWS), a Columbia based virtual public high school and member school of the SC Public Charter School District, is proud to announce that SC Whitmore School is a 2020-2021 National Beta School of Distinction. The school earned this recognition by increasing their club’s membership by at least 10% from last year.

National Beta School of Distinction is an honor for Beta clubs striving towards academic achievement, exemplary character, demonstrated leadership and service to others. With an ongoing quest to instill these qualities in more students, the National Beta School of Distinction Award is designed to award those schools that show an increase in membership for the current school year. This year, only 14% of Beta Clubs across the country received this award.

In a congratulatory letter to the school, Bobby Hart, CEO said “This national award speaks highly of your commitment to academic excellence and illustrates your dedication to preparing students for their future.”

Award recipients will receive a National Beta School of Distinction banner to proudly display as a symbol of their accomplishment.

The SCWS Beta Club sponsor and co-sponsors, Dr. Josie White and Ebone Adams are beyond proud of this achievement.

“We have a very strong group of students this year,” said Dr. White. These kids are intent on positively impacting their communities in a variety of ways, and I know that our club will continue to grow and get stronger every year.”

“I am extremely proud to see the growth in our Beta Club membership,” said Mrs. Adams, the Director of Student Services at SCWS. “Our students are a great representation of SC Whitmore School and we couldn’t be happier. We will continue to encourage our students to strive for excellence so that we can develop more leaders of the future.”
